Dunelm shoppers rush to buy half price cold weather essential that only costs 17p to run | The Sun

SHOPPERS are rushing to Dunelm to buy a half price heating gadget that costs just 17p to run.

The item is a plug-in heater that's slashed by 50% on the website.

The UK has faced chilly temperatures this past week, so there's no better time to bag a bargain – especially if it's heat-related.

Shoppers have spotted a handy 500W Plug in PTC Heater for £10 from Dunelm – it used to be £20.

The website also claims it costs just 17p per hour to run.

This is especially handy since billpayers are reluctant to switch on the central heating.

Four things to always buy at Dunelm and the items to avoid

Dunelm shoppers rush to buy bargain cold weather essential to keep you warm

Remember you'll need to add on delivery costs if you order online.

This will set you back another £3.95 for orders under £49.

But if you'd rather browse in person, you can find your nearest Dunelm using the store locator tool on its website.

We recommend calling up first though to check it's in stock – especially since it's a sale item, everything may be subject to availability.

And do shop around elsewhere too – there might be a few more deals you're missing out on.

You can use tools like Google Shopping or the Latest Deals app to compare prices with other retailers.

We couldn't find a plug-in heater as cheap as Dunelm's, but the closest we came across was the Daewoo version from B&Q.

That one costs £19.99 without any added delivery fees.

There are also mini electric heaters which could do the trick, like the £8 flat fan heater from Dunelm.

But, with any electric heater, make sure you don't leave them on overnight or keep them near furniture because it could cause a fire.

Elsewhere in Dunelm, shoppers spotted a 15% off electric blanket which should only cost 24p per hour.

Of course, how much it costs to run is not the same for everyone – it depends on your energy provider, how much energy you use and which model of blanket you own.

The price tag is £38.25, down from £43.

More ways to save on energy bills

Popping some foil behind your radiator could actually save as much as £25 every year – and it only costs 60p to buy from some DIY stores.

This is because the heat reflects off the paper, meaning you don't need to have it on for as long.

Also, turning the thermostat down by one notch could knock off £80 a year.

Similarly, if you find the flow rate on your boiler, turning it down could save £112 a year.
